Hi guys, it is finaly summer and now I can rebuild my case. I have a spare cupboard (yeah I smashed it)...why not make it out of wood and thus I created project:
Spire
Case
Awesome
Rebuild

I think someone said 'make it out of 1/4 inch wood.' I will build it out of 2cm=0,8inch wood (you know, spare cupboard). It is going to be heavy metal..wood case. Get it :D high five... no one.. OK. I will just begin with the project:

First I made a 3D model in Google SketchUp

I think it looks good. On the top will be a plexi window.
The base plate is cut

More updates will follow, probably one every 2 days.

New update
Now the hole for power suply is ready, I just hope there is enough space for proper airflow


The mid part of my case, here will be the motherboard


How difficult is to find a small piece of wood to hold my plans?:wtf:


This is how I make a straight cut:)


Remember always wear proper safety equipment, like earplugs..

Update!
Things are going smothly so far. I had to cut an airvent for power supply

Remember when I said to always wear proper safety equipment? Well after this much cuting already got something in my eye :shadedshu

The finished result, it is not strait but I'll fix it

Testing that everything fits
